Water for Israel

Israel has three water sources: Lake Kinneret, the Mountain Aquifer and the Coastal Aquifer. Israel also has KKL-JNF. KKL-JNF gathers water, drop by drop, from Negev and Galilee flash floods, and from wastewater treatment facilities throughout the country, to enrich Israel’s water economy by a total of 260 million cubic meters.
